BG Group’s board has accepted Chris Finlayson’s resignation as chief executive and executive director, effectively immediately. Andrew Gould, BG nonexecutive chairman, will take over as interim executive chairman until a permanent replacement is appointed, the company said.
A recruitment process to find an external successor to Finlayson is under way. Gould will return to his role as nonexecutive chairman once the company finds a new chief executive.
The company has withdrawn the resolution to reelect Finlayson as a director at this year’s annual general meeting.
